Off-road Cycling (MTB)

Our mountain biking tours are designed to provide you with an active experience among beautiful mountainous landscapes. Being keen mountain bikers, our guides are highly knowledgeable on the local terrain and are always willing to share with you their biking experience as well as give you some riding tips in case of need.

You should not be worried in case you don’t want to deal with tiresome and often expensive transportation of your personal bikes as you can rent some of our own hard tail mountain bikes, which are completely suitable for the terrain of our tours.
